Training with elastic bands increases bone mineral density

by P. Debraux | 24 Avril 2020

In women, the loss of bone mineral density increases with age and menopause. However, regular physical activity helps strengthen the bones. Can training with elastic bands fight the age effects?

M.M.A. : Training adaptation to competition with Borg scale

by A. Manolova | 25 Janvier 2019

The Borg scale allows a valid and subjective assessment by the athlete of the intensity of the perceived effort. This method could be useful for the strength and conditioning of fighting sports.

Use of elastic bands in squat and performance benefits

by P. Debraux | 26 June 2018

The ability to generate high level of force as quickly as possible is a critical factor in many sports. To work this physical quality, there are different methodologies including variable resistance training with elastic bands...

Effects of concurrent training in endurance and strength for high-level kayakers

by A. Manolova | 1 June 2018

The endurance and strength training cause distinct and often divergent adaptation mechanisms. This is why in sports where both of these qualities are necessary, it seems important to optimize the training periodization.

Changes of resistance when performing several variations of push-ups

by P. Debraux | 18 May 2018

One of the most basic bodyweight exercise, push-ups allow gains in strength and muscular endurance in the trunk and upper limbs. To change the resistance, It is possible to raise the hands or feet' support. But how will it affect the resistance ?
